Legally Host A Super Bowl Party
Churches must abide by NFL guidelines.

If your church is hosting a Super Bowl party this year, you will need to abide by three simple guidelines to avoid violating copyright law. Attorney David Middlebrook, who specializes in representing tax-exempt organizations and is a member of our Editorial Advisory Board, lays out the guidelines set by the NFL in this quick video clip:

Excellent video and one that I would recommend that every church, pastor and leader watch, not just at Super Bowl time.
